Analyst and psychotherapist Robert D. Morningstar has studied the paranormal and UFOs for over 60 years, and has published many research articles on the Internet. In the first half, he updated his work on Martian and lunar anomalies (view related images). In a full-color photo of the moon taken by a spy satellite, Morningstar described seeing an odd structure around the lunar body, like a serrated edge. There are Apollo photographs, he added, that show green areas on the moon. He is particularly fascinated by discoveries on the moon's Far Side including a "bridge" he spotted near a crater in Clementine spacecraft photos, and accounts of Apollo astronauts like Gene Cernan hearing a kind of outer space music.
On the Red Planet, Morningstar cited a curious "sculpture" which he calls the "Great Wall of Mars," as seen in a 2016 photo taken by the Curiosity rover. While scientists have suggested sand dunes formed the structure, he pointed out what appears like rectilinear lines and the appearance of shattered or petrified wood. Morningstar said he even sees a UFO-like object within the large shards. He also contends that Face on Mars is a geometrically encrypted icon, and he posits four different faces-- that of a man, a lion, an ox, and an eagle, which he correlated with a passage from Ezekiel. Further, he believes that Martian survivors came to Earth after their atmosphere was destroyed and they terraformed the area around Giza in order to build the pyramids as monuments to their lost world.
In the latter half, Andrew Knoll, Professor of Natural History at Harvard University, discussed Earth's 4.6 billion-year story. He talked about the turbulent nature of our planet, and how over geologic time, the place where you're standing may have been crushed by a towering sheet of ice, rocked by a meteor strike, choked by poison gases, or drowned beneath the ocean. Looking at something like a canyon wall, we can see the very history of the Earth, written in rock, he said, including indicators for extinction periods. There have been five great extinction events, he noted, including the asteroid impact of 66 million years ago that wiped out the dinosaurs. But most extinction-level events are triggered by localized occurrences such as a massive volcanic event of 250 million years ago that changed the animal and plant life of the world in profound ways.
According to experiments, the building blocks for life could have formed naturally under conditions present in the early Earth, he reported. It's only within the last half-century that the theory of continental drift and plate tectonics has been accepted, which informs our thinking about mountains, volcanoes, and earthquakes. Science is an ongoing process of learning and re-evaluating things, he commented. It's abundantly clear, he continued, that we are in the midst of global warming and climate change, and it can't be explained by variations in the sun's cycle. People need to acknowledge and understand that "we live in a time that is really unusual. Earth doesn't change at this pace most of the time," he said, "and we can choose to do something about it."
